roles off and on since the 1980s and was a campaign for john mccain in his failed bid for the presidency. wolf? >> lisa, thank you very much. we'll be anxious to see what the task force comes up with, what the president says in the state of the union address before congress. thank you. lisa, thank you very much for that report. >>> the obama administration may be stepping up its push for some form of new gun control legislation. but will the president be able to rally the support of congress? most importantly, the american public at the same time? we'll dig deeper with our chief political analyst gloria borger. here's what the president recently said on "meet the press." i'll play the clip. >> we're not going to get this done unless the american people decide it's important. and so this is not going to be simply a matter of me spending political capital. one of the things that you learn, having now been in this office for four years, is the old adage of public opinion. without public opinion there's not something you can't do and wut it there's very little you can't get done in this town
john mccain introducing it and he wasn't trusted by the hispanic community. they didn't look at him as being authentic. i think cube yeo can make a difference this time and pairs with ted crews and obama could do himself a favor if he enlists the help of these border state governors. guys like rick perry, susan martinez and jan brewer and marco rubio, as well. one thing he is not doing in his proposal that he is probably going to unveil later this year, there is no mention of border security at all. >> arthel: okay, because that is going to veer off. you touched on something that i want to bring santita in on this. that president obama should reach out to some of the border governors like perry and regardless of party. what do you say about that? >> i said at the top of segment they come here legally. where are the borders really? of course, we're for the border governors they have an interest in protecting borders but we also have to look at our intake. if you have people that visit this country who just come here and stay and homeland security can't track them, come on, what is go
the quote with john mccain and you know, mitch mcconnell back -- literally -- you know, when it is something obama wants they're against it. >> oh, yeah. if for whatever odd reason, bush nominated hagel to be secretary of defense whatever, he would have gotten every republican vote. i'm assured of that. but obama nominates him and you know, here we have the republican party which is going to use up its few remaining resources to oppose -- >> stephanie: a republican -- >> republican vietnam vet from nebraska to be secretary of defense. we're in bizarro world at this point. >> stephanie: here's john mccain in 2006, i would be honored to have chuck with me in any capacity. he would make a great secretary of state. wow. it is incredible. >> it is amazing. the other thing that kind of bothers me is right so the press has been knocking obama you know. why hasn't he changed the tone of washington. why hasn't he single-handedly ended partisan gridlock? you know, now he goes out of his way to make what i think is probably the most high-profile, across the aisle nominee in modern american history mayb
now has criticized the iraq war. he's criticized virtually every view john mccain has had about foreign policy. and john mccain's a leading figure in the republican party on foreign policy. so it's not surprising to me. what you have to see is how well the white house defends this pick. right now this is a pick that doesn't have a lot of friends on either side of the party. ultimately democrats are going to listen to what barack obama says about his own cabinet. another thing important to mention here is like matt was saying a bit is, take the john brennan pick. the john kerry pick. obama's trying to surround himself with people he really is friends with and likes. the first term was people like hillary clinton, jim jones, bob gates. they're big names. those aren't necessarily obama allies. brennan, hagel, kerry, susan rice, these are really people obama knows and is close to. that's what he's trying to build for his second term. >> i want to bring in congressman adam schiff, democrat from california. always good to see you, congressman, good morning. >> thank you. good morning.
are supportive of israel. >> well, john mccain a fellow vietnam war vet, he released a statement after today's announcement saying, quote, chuck hagel served our nation with honor in vietnam, and i congratulate him on this nomination. i have serious concerns about the positions senator hagel has taken on a range of critical national security issues in recent years. you listen to some of this vitriol, it's like he's charles lindberg or something. i have been to israel so many times. you have doves in the community over there, you have moderates, people like perez who is almost godly in his love for peace. you got all kinds of people over there with different views. isn't the american secretary of defense allowed to have a particular view that's in the middle or slightly to the left or does it have to be bibi netanyahu to have -- >> if you go to tel aviv and look at the debate -- >> it's wide open. >> wide open. here it's much more -- >> if you're not for bibi, you're not considered pro-israel. >> chuck hagel is not a pacifist. number two, he's a war is last resort rather than war is first res
the nation" bob schieffer will ask john mccain and joe manchin and stanley mccrystal about the president's nominations and the afghan troop drawdown and talk with mayor antonio villaraigoso sunday on "failings the nation" on cbs. >>> chilling new details in britain in the child sex scandal connected to a famous television host. police report claims jimmy savile who died in 2011 committed more than 200 sex crimes over six decades. the youngest victim was just 8 years old. the assault took place in television studios, school hospitals and even a hospice. second report blames police for not doing more to stop sevile. >>> the government is targeting an active ingredient in ambien saying we're taking too much of it. zolpidem, the popular sleep aid, the fda cut the recommended dose in half and says doctors should do the same thing for men. welcome, doctor. >> thank you for having me. >> what is the issue here? >> we've known for a long time this is a help. the government is just concerned with new studies with driving simulators that these drugs are staying in our system muc
surprises this morning. more the controversy played into that, three lawmakers on capitol hill, john mccain, dianne feinstein and carl levin come out and right this letter slamming this movie which is unprecedented with a movie that is just about to be released. the studio is very much thinking that it stepped into a much larger debate that predates the movie that has to do with the role of torture in the hunt for osama bin laden and in the war on terror. and they've kind of fallen into this great debate going on between the cia and lawmakers on capitol hill. >> to be continued, ted johnson, thank you so much. >>> today's tweet of the day also blends movies and politics, pourme coffee writes, 2014 oscar winner, ocean's 14, danny and accomplices tunnel from metro in daring heist of is $1 trillion coin from treasury. now...guaranteed. duracell with duralock. trusted everywhere. your soups are so awesomely delicious my husband and i can't stop eating 'em! what's...that... on your head? can curlers! tomato basil, potato with bacon... we've got a lot of empty cans.

of defense, the independent streak. interesting to watch john mccain. mccain part of the group of -- who embraced hagel. vietnam vets together they used to pal around with john kerry and max cleland and chuck rob, vietnam senators but differed in the past few years and there's tension there. mccain's the key person. for brennan, brennan has a weak spot he was pro-cia, waterboarding type of activities, mccain was opposed to that. mccain's in the spotlight the next week. >> talk about women. we've had three major appointments so far, three major suggestions at the moment. kerry, brennan and hagel. we know the treasury secretary's leaving. we haven't had somebody named but there are not a lot of women's names floating around, as potentials. why no more women in the cabinet? >> well, we're just losing two high-profile women in the obama administration, hillary clinton, but also lisa jackson at epa. it is -- seems to me the president's going to want to try to get in his last remaining appointments some women in play. susan rice can stay in at u.n. but you want to get a few more. you might see
critical the way he is now, he runs the risk of becoming the next john mccain, the kind of guy that can win a general election but can't win a primary. he has to be real careful the next couple of years >>> everybody says that the republican party has to do soul searching and change. might chris christie force that change? >> those numbers that you are citing there are probably fleeting. new jersey has been through a rally around the flag moment. they look a lot like george bush's numbers in the three months after 9/11. i don't think he will be at 60 plus percent three months from now. that seems unsustainable as they remember the conflicts that you mentioned he has been having with them. the goal here should not be for chris christie to be a critic of the republican party. he needs to be a reformer of the republican party from the inside. he had a specific quarrel with speaker boehner. that means he is going to need not to continue that but to cause the party to follow him. >> okay. so here is a scenario. jason, i will post this to you. what if chris christie said, hey, i really want to be
, minister of national defense for colombia, welcome. senator john mccain of arizona, someone who i personally have had the honor to interview back in washington since he was a congressman from the early '80s. welcome, senator. and our wonderful host, pete mackay. and finally, josef joffe. senator, i would like to start with you. the first panel yesterday was looking at this question of a new normal, and the united states' current light footprint strategy. i could literally feel you chomping at the bit as one of the panelists discussed what he saw as the u.s. role in the world being in such a state of flux now. but we are less willing than ever before to step up to try to solve the chaos in the world, especially when there's no pressing national interest. >> first of all, i think we have to as politicians understand what our constituents, what our citizens, what their priorities are and what their concerns are. our former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff made a comment that's been b often quoted, he said our greatest national security threat is our economy. and i think that tha
